Build-A-Deck

bethebard:

Hey, tumblr Magic community, I got an idea…

Let’s build a Commander deck together. I’ll give a Legendary Creature that will act as our General. Your job will be to reblog and add a card that you think belongs in the deck. I’ll keep track of what’s been added, and once we hit an appropriate number, I’ll post the final decklist.

Do you think you’d be interested? If so, let’s give it a try.

Our General will be…

Aurelia, the Warleader

Aurelia, the Warleader! (from Gatecrash)

What do you think would be a good addition to a deck with Aurelia as the Commander?

My pick is Markov Blademaster

Do people play EDH on skype, cause uh, dang…none of my friends play magic anymore, and i’ve never adequacy played edh.

CARDS I AM EXCITED FOR FOR MY EDH DECK

This asshole is my commander because he’s angry as balls.

I will never get enough mana to cast this and thromok on the same turn but LIVING THE DREAM IF I DO

I love this card because nothing makes me happier than negating large life gains.

TEHEHEHEHEHEHEHE tokens.

thromok does not GIVE A SHIT BUT WHEN HE DOES FUCK YOU.

seriously like the entire deck is creatures, this is fantastic.  gaaah, money.

Baller.  Punching is for winners.

in a token/creature deck?  nomilicious, and in a really fickle spot on my curve I always have trouble with.

THESE ARE THE THINGS IM EXCITED ABOUT

Argh, it’s like I can’t seem to build 60-card decks anymore…

Ever since getting into playing EDH, I’ve started to see 60 card decks either as competitive play decks or combo engines. My casual-loving inner Timmy has had a hard-on for EDH, and within the past two weeks, I’ve built two more decks, and started two more. I feel like I can just throw good shit that plays well together in an EDH deck, and it works, usually.

Once I get all the pieces for them together, I’ll have Kemba/Raksha, Sheoldred/Mikaeus, Niv-Mizzet, Bruna, Sigarda, Rhys the Redeemed, and Darigaaz the Igniter decks.

Maybe it’s just some sort of a phase. I have 60 card decks I love playing, and some that I want to build or fix up (going to splash black in my precursor golem deck for Corpsejack Menace and Increasing Savagery =3, and I want to try to remake my Naya ramp). It’s just… fuck… I’ve been bitten by the bug. It doesn’t help that EDH is the big trend locally, even if I never get to make the meetups at Denny’s due to my work schedule.

Nope, it’s not a phase. You get trapped in a world of EDH and you can never go back. :S

Source(s): Past experience…

I wish I had an EDH playgroup

I have literally one friend that plays magic at this point.  Where do you people even find friends ;-;

Karn, Silver Golem


What does everyone think about the inclusions?

I’m quite happy with the product.  I think it’s one of the few marketed toward me. It contains a lot cards I was always thinking about getting that I simply never got, which is nice.  Plus lovely karn and sliver queen avoidances of the reserved list, which is super okay with me.

Having someone ask you to sit around and talk about EDH for an hour is awesome.

Only the best podcast on the planet.

Primeval Titan and Worldfire Banned in Commander.

Yep. Ground breaking news. I am a sad panda right now. :(

Psh.  GOOD.  Now if only i could somehow erase consecrated sphinx from our lives, it would be great.

findmeaviolin:

i really really want to make a naya colored edh and am looking at using mayael as my general.any suggestions? people tell me shes too slow but i dont think so with green running ramp.

Mayael is strong, but makes you a target if you’re doing too well.  Very fun though

Uril is OP and will get you bumped off the table before you get to do much due to fear

Rith is solid and full of tokeny goodness

Hazezon is fun, but pretty weak.  Also because it’s a stange older card, no one will expect that swarm of tokens popping out.

Jacques is bad but playable

Palladias-Mors is just a big inefficient beat stick

Johan is also bad

Mayeal, Rith or Hazezon are the only ones I’d consider.

I have Tuesday off :D

so I think I’ll attempt to get some EDH decks in check woo!

Get some Thromok or Vela down.
